“An administrative penalty shall be imposed in the amount of P1,000 against candidate, political party, and contributors for incomplete submission of the required documents,” the poll body said in Resolution No. 10505.

Based on the resolution, a SOCE is considered incomplete when any or all of the required documents are unsigned or not notarized; lacks details and entries in any or all the documents; and there is a missing document and receipt.

It will also be considered incomplete if it does not contain all the required information; or does not conform with the prescribed form.

Candidates and political parties may check the SOCE and Attachment Forms to be used at the Comelec website: http://www.comelec.gov.ph/?r=CampaignFinance/CampaignFinanceForms.

SOCE forms for candidates are those With Formula and Without Formula; Special Power of Attorney for Candidates (SPA-C); Authority to Incur Expenditures (AIE); Authority to Receive Contributions (ARC); Notice of Public Rally (NPR); Statement of Expenses on Public Rally (SER-C); and Report of Contractor and Business Firms (RCF)
